Gallery 19 announces a call for entries for its 4th Annual juried Meed4: The Power of Identity. Artists at all experience levels are invited to submit two-dimensional work such as photography painting drawing, and mixed-media to be exhibited during the month of June.
Deadline: May 8
1637 W. 18th Street
For this year’s competition Gallery19 will delve into the ever changing definition of the artist’s self-portrait. While a portrait refers to any image that depicts a human figure, a self-portrait refers to a work that depicts the artist that produced it. Self-portraiture, whether produced in the medium of painting, photography, drawing, or mixed media is its own distinct genre of art, like that of the landscape or the still life. That is, the common features of all self-portraits unify the genre in content and means of expression. We will be looking for work by artists that explore the ideas of self-identity through the power of the self-portrait.
